We talked to Kristie, the Sales Manager at Leez Priory, to find out more about this stunning venue.

Tell us about yourself!

I’ve worked at Leez Priory for the past 4 years and recently became the Sales Manager. In my free time I like to train at my partner’s gym which is local to Leez Priory and spend my down time with friends and family.

What drew you to the wedding world?

Bride and Groom stand in front of a big door filled with intricate details.

I love being around people and the idea of making someone’s wedding day dreams come true is amazing!

What do you think makes Leez Priory unique?

An archway that is part of the building serves as a place for the ceremony.

When couples come to see Leez Priory, not only do they buy into the stunning house and grounds but also me. I get to know all about my couples and build a rapport with them which I am able to carry through all the way up until their big day!

How do you get to know your couples before the big day?

Two members of a band play electric guitar.

I spend around 1.5 hours with my couples during the viewing appointments and countless correspondence going backwards and forwards. During this time I find out how the question was popped, how they felt, what their hobbies are and share things we have in common. We also invite our couples to our dinner dates and to our open days so that they can get to know our beautiful venue and our team better before their big day – if I’m available I always try to pop in and say hello!

What do you think makes for the perfect wedding?

Confidence that Leez Priory is there for you no matter how big or small the question may be!

What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?

In the evening, the Bride and Groom stand beside a lake.

RELAX. Don’t be uptight, let your hair down and let your Personal Wedding Manager worry about the admin. You’re there to simply make the most of the best day of your life!

What do you love about Bridebook?

As you quote ‘whatever your taste, we’re sure to have the wedding venue for you’.

What’s the most memorable wedding you’ve had at Leez Priory?

A rainbow is shown across the sky, which appears to end in the manor.

They are all unique, but for me it had to be one that was held last summer. If I had clicked my fingers and said everything that I would want at my own wedding they had, even down to the groom’s suit!

Why should a couple book Leez Priory?

A brickhouse tudor style mansion is shown across well kept lawns.

Why wouldn’t you book Leez Priory?! There is something so magical about it that words can’t capture, but I’ll try! It boasts elegance, history, charm and romance and, of course, 5-star customer service.

What’s the best photo spot at Leez Priory?

It’s a hard one as we have so many incredible photo opportunities but it has to be the stunning historic Tower. 

What part of your business are you most proud of?

A tall historic tower made of bricks stands beside a big tree.

Our Team. Not just the ones you see on the wedding day but the ones who keep the glassware sparkling, carpets pristine, the grounds manicured and the admin functioning.

How do you feel technology is changing the industry?

We now aren’t limited to holding weddings for couples who live in the UK. We quite often get couples calling to book their weddings site unseen from all across the world thanks to the power of technology. Snippets of couples’ weddings are being shared nearly every day of the week which allows EVERYONE around the world to get a look at how beautiful Leez Priory is.

What is the one piece of advice you would give to couples that are currently struggling amidst the COVID-19 crisis?

Inside the building, a reception room decorated in white and purple.

Put your trust in us. There is no doubt that this is an extremely stressful time and we can’t say when this will be over, but one thing we can promise you is good things come to those who wait… it might not be on the date you initially hoped for, but we will make your wedding day dreams come true!
